offered by the democrats taught to be grafted on to social security, medicare. paid for by the payroll tax. that's called -- a kind of single payer. but the republicans for years have been saying -- no we don't want it that way. we want private insurers. we want a profit motive the we want a market. and indeed if you look back, historically, richard nixon came up with a proposal that was very, very close to the affordable care act. democrats didn't like it. it wasn't close enough to social security and medicare. mitt romney, the reason the president is -- in massachusetts is because obama care was modeled exactly after romney care in massachusetts. including the individual man date, which mitt romney after he signed that into law and was asked where did the mandate come from. he said an idea from the heritage foundation. and i heard from it through newt gingrich. that's where -- that's where this comes, this comes from. so for republicans now to turn around and say, oh, we think this is just awful. we don't like any of this. well it its beyond ironic. it is sort of -- tragic and comic. >>
the treasury department showed a combination of more revenue like taxes and less spending. that led to a gap of $680 billion. guess what. it takes revenues and spending cuts to cut the deficit. they ought to work together on that. $2.08 billion is how much americans are spending on candy for halloween this year. never mind the declarations for the national retail federation. they expect an additional $2.6 billion on costumes and more people in my neighborhood i swear do halloween decorations than for the holidays. 75 days is how many we have before the primary for the special election for the late bill young and florida primary will be key to see the better position for the march 11 general election. the special election of one of the most competitive seats left in the house of representatives. 16 is how many democratic women senators all in fact signed in a private letter to hillary clinton urging her to run for president in 2016. they spilled the beans about it and a list in new york on monday, sources say barbara boxer led the effort that included other names mentioned as candidates inclu
subsidizes health care for people under 65 is through a tax provision, where if your employer pays your cash, you pay taxes on it and if he pays in health insurance, you don't pay tax. this reduces revenue by $300 billion a year. if it were a government program, it would be one of the largest within the federal government. the way the subsidy is structured, the higher the tax rate, the more it is worth. ted cruz, his wife is a highly paid investment banker, they get their insurance through a cadillac plan at goldman sachs and it cost $40,000 a year in 2009. to get a sense, family health insurance would cost 15,000 or 16,000, well more than twice as expensive as normal. the tax benefit is worth about $15,000. now the cost to insure a family of four on medicaid at that time was about $11,000. so that it's not that their health plan cost more than medicaid but the part subsidized by taxpayers cost more than the entirety of medicare coverage. what the affordable care act does is shift around the subsidies, it takes the money and puts it to people who need it either because they have low incomes
the attention away from things like obama care, taxes, energy, those issues that are going to affect virginia in the next four years delayed our ability to get to voters at least to be on the front burner, so to speak. and that's where we are now. >> so it hurt. >> that's what we have to close with. >> it hurt? >> it compressed time to get people while they're paying attention to this race. >> steve. >> bret mentioned this independent libertarian style candidate. he is taking as many as i think the average was 9.5%, 9.5 points if you look at the quinnipiac polls and other polls, if his voters were your voters, you would be winning. how concerned are you about him and what's your pitch to libertarian style voters? >> i'm the most-accomplished pro-liberty candidate that's actually been elected statewide in virginia in my lifetime. so what we talked to them about is my actual accomplishments. being the first to challenge obama care, being an attorney general who's going to leave office having helped exonerate more wrongfully convicted felons than any other a.g. in history. whether it's fighting
promises of taxes going up for people making under $250,000 a year. or not be k able to keep your health plan or doctor. it's so bad that even our friends are spitting mad at us. it turns out it's not his fault. because he didn't know anything about it. any of it. >> it's not really something i followed closely but we don't know -- i'm not familiar with this notion. >> he indicated that he was not aware of what was happening. certainly i was not. >> i don't know what you're referring to. >> nobody understood exactly what was taking place. >>e don't have any independent knowledge of that. >> i first learned about it from the same news reports that most people learned about it. >> it's a good thing that a newspaper gets delivered to the white house or president obama would not have a clue about "fast and furious," benghazi, the justice department, trampling the first amendment rights of james rosen, the fact that under the not so affordable care act, more americans have lost health care than have signed up. he had no idea that death penalties would be denied to nose killed in action during
. to have to kafr for people on medicaid, they have to raise taxes, raise income tax or cut spending for roads, schools and things like that. there are a lot of people who still need insurance so let's expand it to help people get on. but real costs come with it. it's taxpayers. 26 states signed up for this. federal money is paying for them. you're still paying. >> if you think you're, you're not. you're a federal taxpayers. if they have a swelling of the medicaid rolls and don't pay from the exchanges guess who pays. here's a hint. ready? we have been digging into the rule causing millions of americans to lose health insurance. democratic senator mary landrieu is leading an effort to make sure the president's promise will be kept that people can keep their health care insurance if they like it. wait until we show you what she said about this specific issue just a couple of years ago. plus, he was a successful businessman with hundreds of employees but now not a one. he'll join us live with his warning for working americans in the wake of obama care. >>> breaking details tonight on a
and taxes, stopped practicing a job. now a congressman. doctor, you wrote an op-ed were you said america was supposed to be different from europe. what is your point? >> honestly, the whole premise of the founding of our society was that it was a free society based upon limited government with government with the consent of the government. we broke away from a country where the divine right of kings was the popular philosophy. you owed to the king the tide and tax because after all, he was anointed by god. john: a majority at the time voted for it. >> it passed and as the president is apt to tell you very quickly, it passed through the supreme court with some changes. you know, is still be, a part of the united states congress to change something that is bad. chase something that people don't want. and really, the next up in this trauma, if you will, is up to the american people. i have done what i can't the last three years to either try to deflect or improve are not damaged people so badly with this thing. honestly, do you remember back in 1988 when the catastrophic health care plan wa
to deduct all of that $40,000 for tax or that income is never taxed. that's a subsidy worth about $15,000, more than it costs to cover a family of four under medicaid. so this is a crazy feature of our current health care system. and i would note, the cruz's are probably not going to get to keep their health care plan. there will be an excise tax on these extremely high-cost plans that will push employers like goldman sachs to give their employees smaller health plans, pay them more in cash. so i think the president shouldn't have said if you like your health plan you can keep it. one of the key objectives was to change the way in which americans are covered in ways that cover more people, more reliably, at lower cost. and so some people will change plans because of that. >> absolutely. josh barrow, jared bernstein, i wish we had more time. we don't. but thank you. and we'll be right back. when we made our commitment to the gulf, bp had two big goals: help the gulf recover and learn from what happened so we could be a better, safer energy company. i can tell you - safety is at the hea
to delay the mandate tax. >> this has got to be delayed. >> there its no way to fix the monstrosity. >> nobody. ♪ >>> in 1985, the democratic governor of new york, mario cuomo attacked economic policies of ronald reagan in a speech he delivered at yale. governor cuomo said the reagan re-election campaign was filled with oversimplification and reagan policies if enacted would be harsher. that led governor cuomo to say perhaps the most memorable line of any speech. he said we campaign in poetry. but when we are elected we are forced to govern in prose. tonight, president obama stands accused of campaigning in poetry when he was campaigning to passion the affordable care act. >> if you look your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. period. >> if you have health insurance. nothing in the plan will require you to change what you have. >> when president obama was campaigning for re-election the affordable care act had not been fully implemented and said this. if you are one of more than 250 million americans who already have health insurance, you will keep y
their families. meanwhile, these very same guys fighting against jobs programs wanting to give more tax breaks to millionaires and billionaires. it is totally obscene. >> but, you know, senator, the food stamp cuts that will hit tomorrow will slash about $5 billion from the program. now, that's less than the $6.9 billion we spent in fighter jet contracts just this year alone. and get this. it's a fighter jet program that the pentagon doesn't even want. why don't they cut it from there? >> oh, well, al, i guess the answer has something to do with poor people and working people do not make large campaign contributions. our military industrial contractors do. billionaires do. the fact of the matter is that not only are we going to look at a major cut in food stamps tomorrow as you well know, the republican bill -- farm bill passed in the house calls for another $40 billion in cuts over the next ten years. so these guys at a time when many of our kids are facing real challenges getting the food they need, the nutrition they need, these guys are going to war against the kids. they want more and mor
there is what that we are printing money. we're not printing money. >> is that tax money that the fed is spending? >> it is not tax money. much more akin to printing money than borrowing. >> you have been printing money. >> effectively. >> so good to jon stewart for getting that one right. >> why? >> they are creating a trillion dollars of new currency each year digitally. they aren't printing it anywhere. >> not exactly printing but creating it. >> creating it out of thin air. which shocks a lot of people, but that's the fact. >> the line in the movie that most touched me was when you say, that these two fed chairmen with central planning in our economy, more than ever in history in secret. >> at 500 billion of mortgages, biggest playser in the housing market -- >> by far. >> $2 trillion in government debt. >> central planning. didn't work in communist countries. >> throughout history we have seen that market economies do bett better. why are we choosing to give the fed more power and influence p. they should start handing that power back to the market. >> thank you, jim bruce. your
didn't raise 18 new taxes, and our bill passed 198-2. >> aides to romney who signed the bill into law, said he worked for three years to build consensus with democrats, and brown says the value of the bipartisanship is hard to overstate. >> the governor, the senate president, the speaker of the house, business leaders saying we have a real problem. we have people going into emergency rooms and not paying a penny. >> the massachusetts law was also rolled out more slowly, and brown said states are better positioned to deal with health care than the federal government. the massachusetts plan didn't have the computer problems the affordable care act is suffering, and romney said, quote, had president obama actually learned the lessons of massachusetts health care, millions of americans would not lose the insurance they were promised they could keep. they demonstrate the latest health care act, the promise they could keep if they liked them. obama care sets minimum standard coverage that many plans on the market don't meet. mr. obama declared those plans substandard and said the affordable
wasn't. >> it would also be sometime before krauthammer embraced a conservative domestic policy, taxes, welfare, small government and other reaganesque sins. >> took me about a decade. i was skeptical of tax cuts, i was skeptical of smaller government at the beginning and then by the end of the '80s i had begun to change. >> what happened? >> empirical evidence. as a doctor i was trained in empirical evidence. i mean, if the treatment is killing your patients you stop the treatment. and so i began to look and read and think about whether the view i had of a social democratic society like they had in europe was the right way and i sort of -- i moved gradually to the idea of a more limited society, smaller government. >> by that time, krauthammer's world was really falling into place. in 1985, his son daniel was born. two years later, krauthammer won the biggest honor in print journalism. the pulitzer prize. not bad for someone that started in the business less than a decade earlier without even a writing sample. he went straight from the ceremony to see his father who had once worried a
their support. their tax exempt status including the big hospital up in boston that's where, what is it, the patriots, new england patriots get their rehab done. >> that's right. it may lose its tax exempt status. sort of under the microscope under obama care. >> unbefore the boston -- in fact, the last boston marathon victim who had to have a leg amputateds a result of the boston bombing, there he is sadly, it's called the spalding rehabilitation hospital. it's run by a 501 c 3, non-private hospital. under obama care, one of the sicious obama care would provide charity to people coming in off the streets that don't have healthcare coverage. now that law because of obama care scrutinized where they are having to roll back the charitable contributions they give to the community in the case of folks that come in off the street that don't have health insurance. >> former president jimmy carter whose name has become synonymous with oppressing attacked obama care yesterday saying this doesn't work very well. when jimmy carter calls you ineffect actual that's 6 people signing up because the w
. they don't care about hard-working americans who own property, who pay taxes. these regulations could be -- keep you from developing your property, keep you from perhaps fixing a storage issue, drain issue on your property, if you have water drainage issues, you need to fill in some holes or something. these regulations will keep you from doing what you want to do, what's best for your property. >> you know, it sounds, in addition to a great big power grab, it sounds like this is also a way to create some fine revenue, where if you're doing something wrong -- and who knows what it is -- it's broad enough they can say anything is wrong, they're going to start levying fines against people for standing water on your property. >> right. or you have to get a permit. i think the bigger picture is about control because environmentalists don't want land to be developed. they don't want oil or gas or coal to be drilled out of the ground. remember, the e.p.a. has regulations on the coal industry. it's killing jobs and it's bankrupting the coal industry. when you think about it, it's a power gra
problem in that way but it has this huge underlying problem. you cannot continue to tax as if you're a small government country and spend as if you're a big government country. eventually that's going to come back and hit you. >> so this can last until march but in the meantime we can have another crisis and almost certainly will. january 15th is the next budget deadline. february 7th is when we need to raise the borrowing limit. when you were talking to those folks, how nervous are they about those deadlines? >> i think they're getting irritated as well as nervous. that makes a difference. you sit there and you're trying to make plans, you're trying to build a factory, you're trying to hire people. would you do that if you weren't quite sure what was going to happen in terms of the government, whether you're going to get hit, for instance, because there might be a demand to close the gap really quickly. well, who's going to -- who are they going to go for? they're going to go for business and that, i think, is a big thing. businesses react to consumers' confidence and they feed o
's going to be able to get an i.d. that costs $22, by the way, otherwise known as a poll tax. how many 90-year-olds are going to have an assistant to be able to do that? by the way, we've also seen, a judge had to sign an affidavit to be able to vote. wendy davis, candidate for governor, had to sign an affidavit to be able to vote. greg abbott, the republican candidate for governor, had to sign an affidavit to vote, because his name on his i.d. is not the same as his name in the poll book. so we're seeing at the very least a lot of people get inconvenienced by this law. we know 600,000 to 800,000 registered voters don't have the i.d. there. can you imagine what it's going to be like in texas when wendy davis and greg abbott are running against each other for governor? >> and the greg abbott piece has the sense of poetic justice, like at least he's getting caught up in his own thing. but he has resources available to him that others don't. when you talk about abbott in texas, it's also a reminder that in virginia, the other seat that is open here, where there's a big fight. in fact, maybe
income-tax returns, 71% of them were in real estate. you see, in high school and college, they teach us how to get a job, but at my live events, i take pride in teaching you how not to be dependent on a job and how to take control of your own destiny. >> before going to than's event, i was livi paycheck to paycheck. in fact, on my first deal using than's system, i had nothing in my savings at that point. on that deal, i made over $40,000. fast forward to where i am today -- my net worth has grown astronomically. i am buying and selling multiple properties every month, and the sky's the limit at this point. i absolutely love knowing that i do not have to depend on anyone else for money ever agn. >> we have so many successful students just like marina, who came to one of my events, who just wanted more opportunity and a better life, learned my system, and are now out there making money in real estate, loving what they do. throughout this show, you're gonna see and hear from successful students of mine from a wide variety of different backgrounds, from teachers to truckers,
from? >> we don't have it. we may have to tax more in the future to get it or tax somebody to get it. but we don't have it now. >> will more regulations mean more taxes which is what they're trying to do? >> these new regulations would affect building codes, for example, the cost of building, the cost of rebuilding after a storm, it would all go up. who pays and where do we get the money from? answer, in the long run it is going to have to be the taxpayer who foots the bill for this ultimately. so taxes have to go up or borrowing goes up, one of the two. remember, you satisfy a key constituency here. you satisfy the environmentalists. you are doing something about global warming or climate change, call it what you will. the unions love it because you're going to get backdoor infrastructure spending. >> we don't have the x.l. pipeline. let's look at how much these environmental disasters cost us. look in the 1980's, we had 144 disasters cost about $1 trillion. >> are we to assume all that spending between 1980 and 2012, $1 trillion, was the cost of the disasters, the natural disasters
, read my lips, no new taxes, that never left him, that phrase because taxes were raised. is this that kind of moment for president obama? >> not at all. the last person anybody will listen to about obamacare is mitt romney coming architect of obamacare and with president obama. he has his own credibility problems. martha: he is hardly the only person saying this. >> the fact is his plan is the reason we have obamacare. he chose to run for president in 2008. so in 2012 mitt romney rejected romneycare and the voters rejected him as president. martha: the fact is what does it mean to me now? i have got obamacare, promise i would not lose my doctor and lo and behold people are getting kicked off these plans all across america. how does this president turn it around? does he say i own this plan, it is mine, come with me, i will pull you through this? >> two things, martha. that is exactly what he needs to do. what he should have said and what he needs to say now is you can keep your plan if you like it, or you are going to get a better plan with better benefits that cost less
, no new taxes. this is a promise obama had replayed now and at odd with the facts on the ground and that say problem politically for the president. >> his language changed this weekend. he no longer said if you like your plan you can keep your plan. listen to how he state today now. >> everyone who already has health insurance through your employer, medicare or medicaid will keep the benefits and preces that this law put in place. >> keep the benefits that the law put in place. that is different than just keep your plan, isn't it? >> it is. you played david a xelrod modifying his language and executive kelly back pedalling off of the promise because it is simply not true. and the extent it is played out over and over. and there is no reason to suggest that the stories will suddenly stop happening. it will cause not only for the presidented. he's not up for reelection. but it will hurt his job approval rating and that will hurt the democrats in 2014 and beyond. >> tom bevin, thank you for your analysis today. we'll talk about the political fallout in the show, to, thank you so mu
to say sochris. >> let's wait a couple of months. they have to been they will pay a penalty tax. this is the problem, there is a passive attitude by some on the left that it is a technical glichlt it is not. it is a disastrous malfunction on the biggest plan that the president pushed in his administration. the fact that he is so detached is concerning. >> go a head, chris. >> i find it humorous when they talk about obama care and health care in general. i want waiting for a health care proposal on the other side or fixes. are there problems with the roll out absolutely. the question is how do you fix those? the administration is focused on fixing the problem. six months we have serious issues. i hope i hear more solutions than simply critizing. >> the republicans are not your problem. who is critizing the roll out. john stewart. saturday night live. that's why the paradigm shifted. you are angerring a lot of people. >> come up with a credible solution to fix it. >> you know the whole roll. we have come up with many. >> he is practicing his lines today. >> thank you. >> gentle ma
would have been simple as heck. you just pay your taxes, government pays the bills, no website, no confusion. that's what we didn't get, and it's the spin machine that's made us think that this is some kind of -- >> and despite all the spin and despite the complication and the healthcare.gov glitches, when we look at the questions about an opinion of the affordable care act, we still see that in october of 2013, in september of 2013, in july of 2013, it's pretty consistently above a third of americans thinking it's a good idea, fewer than half of americans thinking it's a bad idea, and this is despite, as you point out, tara, the massive misinformation obfuscation campaign by republicans on this. i mean, they've been running against obama care for three election cycles. >> i have to jump on the electoral cal clus, which is what about the government shutdown? we have totally forgotten about the government shutdown and how the republican party blundered that. where people were out of work for week, billions of dollars were lost. so we're coming -- but the aca has obfuscated this,
and the taxes were going up, all i was offered was black market cigarettes. i'll tell you something, i miss the drugs. whoever is keeping score. >> it's going to turn me into a cigarette pimp. all these young people will try to get me to buy cigarettes. i'm going to be a horrible cigarette pimp. coming up. i saw something moving in my sad had. i ate it because i'm a weirdo. how does this model ruin one poor slob's marriage? we'll get to the bottom. okay ladies, whenever you're ready. thank you. thank you. i got this. oh, no, i'll get it! let me get it. uh-uh-uh. i don't want you to pay for this. it's not happening, honey. let her get it. she got her safe driving bonus check from allstate last week. and it's her treat. what about a tip? oh, here's one... get an allstate agent. nice! [ female announcer ] switch today and get two safe driving bonus checks a year for driving safely. only from allstate. call 866-905-6500 now. here we go! hold on man. is that a leak up there? that's a drip. whoo. okay. aah. now that's a leak. that is a leak! and if you don't have allstate renters insurance... gam
this something that is new money and new tax dollars or is this something you think some conservatives will be comfortable supporting if it means new federal money? >> i think so. it's not a significant amount of money, but it is new dollars. we use a model that works. the health care centers could expand to add behavioral health. a number of them in my state and other states are doing that anyway. we have a model that works and frankly the tragedies of the last couple of years. drawing attention to this issue. we both believe we have a model that works and a moment that works. this is something that the congress could do to respond to these tragedies. after newtown late last year, the senate committee that deals with the mental health the first they had since 2007. for whatever reason this is something that is a society we haven't dealt with the way we should. it is the consistent thing and the tragedies we see. it is important to make a point here that people with mental health challenges are much more likely to be the victims than the perpetrators of crime whether it was newtown or

device tax on an industry that represents about two-and-a-half percent of our gross domestic product in massachusetts that will cost jobs here in massachusetts. one of the problems is what we did in massachusetts was tailored to our population. it took advantage of health care and a number of different things, one of them, steve, was the fact that we had merged the non-group market with the individual market to try to spread out risks. what does the federal plan do? well, it reduces the number of rating factors we can use to evaluate risk for that pool. it's undermine wack we want to do. in fact, we have pleaded with our governor, governor patrick has asked the federal government, give us a waiver so that we can evaluate and price risk fairly and yet we now are going to be forced to use 4 rating factors as opposed to 106789 that's one of the major points of distinction here, massachusetts plan worked because it was designed for pennsylvania. we had expertise, for instance, in pricing risks. we had growth markets in medical devices. yet, when we look at what's happening at the federal
. instead of subsidizing them directly with a tax and being honest with that what you are trying to do is disguise it by hiking the premiums and here is what people leave out, hiking the deductibles. and that's where people are going to get real sticker shock. >> all right. but you know as well as i do in the political culture there is a cya component? it's not ymca, cover your butt. that would be cyb but they use another word for butt. >> cyp. >> i submit to you that barack obama is the champion of this. and that the way he administrates is i don't want to know. don't tell me. don't tell me about fast and furious. don't tell me about libya's security. don't tell me about the irs hunting down the tea party people. i'm fine with it, don't tell me. i know he didn't read the 1400 page obama care law. >> but that's not where you get that information. he would get it from the people who put the plan together. >> but he wouldn't even ask him. i bet they didn't even have a meeting with them. >> this isn't even a detail. here is where i think i have got some experience. i have met the presiden
% of those people are going to get a tax credit to help them purchase a better insurance policy at a lower overall cost. so again, i think the secretary explained that well as you indicated, there were some people who wouldn't accept the answers even though they were accurate answers. >> this was a opportunity for people at home who were still uncertain about the website to hear from the person leading the way, but is there anything in the hours long hearing today that would make the process better? the website, getting people in all states to sign up for affordable health care. >> as you know, there's some states that are moving ahead on their own and then there are the other states part of the federal system. and some of the states are way ahead of the game, the state of kentucky has been a great example. thousands of people signing up. the administration was brought in the new point person, the one who created that punch list and said they were going to work through the punch list so they can have the system up and running for a vast majority of people by november. as we know, the signu
sacrifice for many of us, he continues to sugar it up. >> because of the tax credits that we're offering, and the competition between insurers, most people are going to be able to get better comprehensive healthcare plans for the same price or even cheaper than projected. >> we'll see. but so far most of the healthcare promises the president has made have not materialized. barack obama well knows that the democratic party and progressive americans don't really care how he gets there. they just want more government control. the president has to deceive to make that happen, so be it. but most americans are not progressives and are not happy with mr. obama right now. a new "wall street journal" says the president's job approval rating is down to 42%. his lowest showing ever in that poll. when asked if obama care is a good idea. 37% say yes. 47% no. nevertheless, the president forms ahead. >> i don't think we should go back to dropping coverage for people when they get sick or because they make a mistake on their application. [ applause ] i don't think we should go back to the daily crueltie
like head start and meals on wheels. and on the flip side, they want lower taxes for the rich, subsidies for all companies, and they want to gut wall street reform. these are some real weird priorities for people that claim they love america and love the american people. >> and don't forget to add in that they don't want people to have health care. >> that's near the top of the list. >> exactly. i do think it's sad. but it really does reflect an underlying philosophy. and that is the survival of the fittest. and so we don't want to put a hand out to help folks. if you can't make it, then you're out of luck. but when we're talking about food stamps just like you showed at the beginning of the segment is there's a lot of veterans on food stamps. are they saying that they're just sitting around waiting to have a government handout? i think it's a real double standard. and it's a very sad way that the republican party has developed. you know, in addition to cutting, they also want to add on crazy restrictions like you have to have drug testing and you have to work ignoring the fac
